  • Bears Ears Monument

    This linked article was written by Ben Long on Dec, 7, 2017.<br>
    <br>
    https://www.outdoorlife.com/facts-are-victims-in-war-over-national-monuments<br>
    <br>
    In the article, Mr. Long states the BLM reports abundant oil &amp; gas in Bears Ears monument.<br>
    <br>
    This next linked article is written by Andrew McKean four days earlier on Dec 3, 2017<br>
    <br>
    https://www.outdoorlife.com/trumps-national-monument-decision-should-be-neither-mystery-nor-surprise<br>
    <br>
    In the article, Mr. McKean reports that in an interview, Sec&apos;y Zinke states there is NO oil or gas in Bears Ears monument!<br>
    <br>
    Both articles seem (are?) liberally biased against Trump and/or resizing ANY monuments...but why can&apos;t they make up their minds!?<br>
    <br>
    If they can&apos;t get the &quot;facts&quot; on something as important as oil &amp; gas in Bears Ears Monument, I&apos;d say the rest of their reporting is highly questionable! <br>
    <br>
    Seems their facts are already &quot;victims&quot;!<br>
    <br>
    Has anyone else noticed?<br>

    There's gold in them thar hills. That's all it took and the black hills have never been the same. Greed,money,and power is the bottom line.Once land becomes sanctioned as part of our heritage then it should remain .These big city people that have never connected with our natural world only care about what they can get now,and our future generations will be S.

      That is the big problem for citizens of this country ! When we read/hear reports from persons of repute, just which one of them do we believe when they conflict with each other ? Most of us have an opinion on this or that and will usually go with the report that agrees with our opinion. What is the best recourse to persue in the quest for the truth in a matter we are not sure of ? Just who are we to believe who is lying or being truthful ? Do we look for the one who appears to gain the most, or the one who has no direct connection with the issue ? Many issues have pros and cons connected, and both sides of a issue have their own facts, how are they separated ? Going with the gut in these matters is not always the best way to procede. So ............ ??

        These websites claim to support "conservation".
        To me, "conservation" means not littering, planting grass to stop erosion, planting trees to provide habitat and browse, etc.

        The OL site and the F&S site promote more land under federal gov't control with no resource development except B&C bulls and bucks behind every bush!
        ...AND...!
        At no cost to them!
        I once suggested an annual $25 public land access permit!
        You would have thought I'd slapped the baby and stolen his candy!
